Scanning historical and current trends in animation through different perspectives including art history, film, media and cultural studies is a prominent facet of today's theoretical and historical approaches in this rapidly evolving field. Global Animation Theory offers detailed and diverse insights into the methodologies of contemporary animation studies, as well as the topics relevant for today's study of animation. The contact between practical and theoretical approaches to animation at Animafest Scanner, is closely connected to host of this event, the World Festival of Animated Film Animafest Zagreb. It has given way to academic writing that is very open to practical aspects of animation, with several contributors being established not only as animation scholars, but also as artists. This anthology presents, alongside an introduction by the editors and a preface by well known animation scholar Giannalberto Bendazzi, 15 selected essays from the first three Animafest Scanner editions. They explore various significant aspects of animation studies, some of them still unknown to the English speaking communities.

MEDIA REVIEWS
We have in Global Animation Theory a welcome expansion of the recent scholarship that has focused on the international development of animation practices. The editors and authors delve deeply into genres, techniques, and national cultures to reveal the complex and contested world of animation analysis, critical thinking, and new theoretical approaches. Often the discussions bring personal and artistic perspectives to the subject, enlivening this liveliest medium all the more. * Donald Crafton, Professor Emeritus, University of Notre Dame, USA *
In this book, through case studies that deals with great number of historically important animated films from all over the world, authors are unveiling, interpreting and defining many hidden and complex elements that make the art of animation so fascinating. * Frano Dulibic, Professor of Art History, University of Zagreb, Croatia *
For me, as an animation artist and scholar, the symposium Animafest Scanner represents the best of both worlds: An academic conference with high-calibre international speakers, which is embedded into one of the world's most important artistic animation festivals, Animafest Zagreb. In the reader Global Animation Theory, this combined spirit is finally transferred into a book that will no doubt have a substantial impact on the steadily growing field of animation studies. * Dr. Max Hattler, Assistant Professor, School of Creative Media, City University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong *
